Hi James, We do provide the link to the public website where we get the information so if you do want to find out the names you just need to put in the zip code that the incident or arrest occurred in.

We should be happy this week then, as we only have low level criminals to read about. :)

I am glad the names aren't on the blotter, since they are innocent until a hearing. There is much more to the incident. We could have a more detailed account of what is happening in our neighborhood but let the person have their day in court without us knowing the name.

The reason I read your police blotter is to get "ALL" of the information about the arrest reports. The Suffolk County News used to give the names of those arrested until they buckled under the pressure of those involved. Now you are doing the same thing and you are nothing more than a clone of the Suffolk County News. Stand up and get some backbone and go back to the old way of reporting arrests.

Hi Bill, as I mentioned in my earlier post we will continue to provide names on major misdemeanors and felonies, including DWI and burglaries. We didn't buckle under any pressure but adjusted the policy given that very minor incidents are labeled as 'arrests' and are sometimes actually a ticket at the scene and many minor 'arrests' have extenuating circumstances which aren't explained fully in the blotter. We also provide the link to the public blotter so you can easily click through to get the details on the blotter posted by Suffolk Police.
